#RFASUMMER Challenge is over! 🔥😱We have 8 winners! WOW! I can't believe you stuck to your routine and studied Russian all summer long!!! 🥳🥳🥳 Молодцы! Поздравляю! 1️⃣ @kristinalachaga Kristina is a rising talented pop star and a very talented and dedicated student. She takes every opportunity to practice Russian and doesn't get upset when she makes a mistake. It has been amazing to watch her make such big progress! 2️⃣ @jurgmay Jurgen has impressed me with his dedication to Russian as well as running a business and taking care of his family. He was 1/3 participants (+Gerald +Justin) who didn't take a week off and worked hard all summer! Wow! 3️⃣ @gerald.jean_loki Gerald and I first met on my Intro course and we have become good virtual friends. The number of hours this man puts in on a daily basis to master our hard language is insane! His perseverance is unprecedented. 4️⃣ @j.speaksintongues Justin is such a unique person with a great sense of humor. He is so bright and works as a teacher himself. He comes in close with Gerald in terms of the # of crazy hours they put in to learn Russian. I love the way he ties in humor into his assignments. 5️⃣ @rosedeguzmanauthor Rose is a new student on the block. She found out about the challenge through @mblr (thank you!) and made it through the whole summer! She made amazing videos, covers, told us about her life and has been an amazing asset to this challenge. 6️⃣ @sub_ita17 Stefania is extremely fluent in Russian and has now started a page where she teaches Italian. I mentioned many times that her videos are great for listening comprehension! I enjoyed seeing her shine through each video. 7️⃣ @paulsrussian Paul is a new student but someone I got to know better through this challenge and videos. I love that he wasn't shy to post his lessons and to share with others his thoughts and ideas on language learning. It has been such a pleasure to get to know you! 8️⃣ @christopher.m.peek Last but not least is Chris! He is the only student who completed the challenge 2nd year in a row! Wow! His fluency is amazing (even if he doesn't think so) and he has become more confident this summer. 🥳Congrats!🥳
